Recognition Dinner for Littles
Thursday, May 25, 6-8 PM
Cafeteria at Asheville High School
419 McDowell St. Asheville, NC 28803
BBBS Littles make amazing progress during their time as mentees and the Recognition Dinner is an opportunity for us—the community—to come together and celebrate them for all they have accomplished and encourag them on their future paths.

At this event, Littles from our Community-Based program are recognized for a variety of achievements including making the honor roll to volunteerism. During the evening, we will also be recognizing Littles who are graduating from high school in June.

Bigs and parents are especially encouraged to attend! Your support means so much to these Littles.
